Mesch holds no punches in BT fibre ‘masquerade’

Greg Mesch, CEO of CityFibre, recently sat down with Editor David Dungay at Channel Live to talk about his full-fibre strategy and how it is essential we build out superfast networks rather than masquerading behind BT’s traditional copper network.

According to research commissioned by CityFibre, over three quarters (78%) of UK consumers feel slowed down and frustrated by their internet connection, with the figure rising among homeworkers (82%) and young people (87%). As the school holidays prompt many people to rethink their working arrangements, almost all those who work from home regularly (99%) agree that a better connection would enable them to do so more often.

Catch up on that interview here.

Mesch has continually been vocal about the lack of investment by BT into the national infrastructure and stated earlier this year, “For too long the UK has been held back by a deliberate lack of investment by BT Openreach in fibre infrastructure. Although companies like CityFibre are building the networks that will give millions of homes and businesses access to full fibre broadband, providers continuing to advertise copper-based connections as “fibre” is leaving people completely confused about what is on offer.”
